Are You O.K. Program

"Are you O.K." program telephone reassurance system. Everyday at a designated time, the computer will call you on the phone. A voice will ask "Are You O.K.?". You simply say yes and hang up. If you do not answer, the computer will call back a little while later. If you do not answer the second time the police dispatcher will be notified and an officer will be sent to check your home. If the officer is unable to contact you, we will use the information provided on your application to contact your friend/relative for a key to enter your home to see if you are in distress. If you would like an application or more information contact the senior center at 216.635.4222.



Shred-It Program for Seniors

The Senior Community Center is providing a shred-it service to our seniors who do not have their own shredder. You may bring in your documents and we will put it in a locked console. Shred-it CSR removes secure "Blue Bags" containing confidential documents from the locked console. Behind a locked security screen, shred-it CSR empties the contents of the "Blue Bag" into a special hopper. Highly efficient cross shred knives security shred all confidential documents into fine confetti, on site in our mobile shredding trucks.
